Tips & Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks for wavy hair:

Adaptation to Environment:

  • Wavy hair may need different products and routines based on climate and environmental conditions. Layering products and experimenting with new techniques can help manage frizz and maintain defined waves.

Cocktailing Products:

  • Cocktailing, or mixing hair care products to achieve the desired result, can be beneficial for wavy hair. Try combining products like the moptop Leave-In Conditioner with the Curly Hair Custard to combat frizz and enhance waves in humid conditions.

Creating Beach Waves:

  • To achieve beach waves with wavy hair, consider applying Curly Hair Custard to wet hair after using Leave-In Conditioner. Separate hair into sections, apply the Custard, detangle, scrunch, and let it air dry for beautiful beach waves without frizz.

Night Care Tips - Clipping or Plopping

  • Protect your waves while sleeping by clipping your hair on top of your head or plopping with a cotton t-shirt to reduce friction and maintain the wave pattern overnight.

Additional Tips

  • Experiment with the amount of product based on the texture, length, and porosity of your hair.

  • Avoid excessive shampooing and consider co-washing to refresh and style wavy hair effectively.

Hair Care Routine

For a great hair care routine for wavy hair, moptop suggests the following steps:

  1. Shampooing: Shampoo every 3rd-4th day to cleanse your hair. On Days 2-3, wet your hair in the shower and massage the scalp to activate the sebaceous glands.

  2. Co-Washing: Use a co-wash shampoo to cleanse and refresh your hair on no-shampoo days. This helps hydrate your hair and control oil buildup.

  3. Deep Conditioning: Apply a deep conditioner after shampooing to hydrate your hair deeply. Leave it on for 3-5 minutes, or for more intense conditioning, add a shower cap and apply heat for 20-30 minutes.

  4. Conditioning: Use a suitable conditioner based on your hair type. For wavy hair, MopTop's Light Conditioner or Daily Bamboo Conditioner can hydrate and maintain your waves.

  5. Styling: Style your hair using MopTop styling products like the Curl Enhancer Gel, Curly Hair Custard, or Medium Hold Gel to define and enhance your waves.

  6. Drying: Dry your hair by scrunching out excess water using the plop method with a cotton t-shirt. You can also use a low-heat diffuser to dry your curls gently.

  7. Maintain: Stick to this routine and adjust as needed for your wavy hair. Avoid products with silicones, waxes, and sulfates, as they can cause buildup on your hair.
